Education, Energy and Elixirs
With over 50 areas of legal practice, Wyatt, naturally, has a
broad range of clients. In the education sector, the firm
represents Berea College, Georgetown College, The Sullivan
University System, University of Louisville, University of
Kentucky, University of Memphis and Vanderbilt University. With
several institutes of higher learning as clients, it may be
difficult to choose who to root for on game day.
The firm also has its finger on the pulse of the growing energy
industry. Wyatt represents clients such as Summit Energy Services,
Inc., Arch Coal, Inc. and Earthwell Energy Management.
If their clients are any indication, attorneys at Wyatt
certainly know how to kick back and relax. The firm assisted Heaven
Hill Distilleries, the largest family-owned independent distilled
spirits producer in the United States, to trademark the
distillery's pomegranate liqueur. Attorneys at Wyatt also
successfully represented bourbon giant Wild Turkey during a slogan
dispute. Let's drink to that.

future partners. This conscientious consideration appears to be
